As so-called 'meaningless' fixtures between the Old Firm go, May 7, 1995 turned out to be an emphatic one for Celtic, recoiling as they were from another Premier League won in comfortable fashion by Rangers.

With the Ibrox club already crowned champions this season, as faltering Celts' 10 in a row dreams blew up, Steven Gerrard must be concerned that an otherwise imperious, unbeaten League campaign may end up bookended by sluggish complacency.

Last Sunday's shock penalty shoot-out Scottish Cup exit to St Johnstone stung the Rangers manager - and understandably so. That the Gers failed to account for a well-organised Saints is sharp evidence for any team, irrespective of weekly dominance, that overriding contentment is sheer folly.
